behind me, the work force of our bay area, san francisco, and oakland and others. want to thank everybody for coming here this morning. you know, we have another announcement to make, but it's consistent with the efforts that are being made by the warriors management to work with all of us in the city and to really adapt to the kinds of things that we've all shown as the values of our city. it is so important ause i remin people, this is a private investment of hundreds of millions of dollars. did i say 5 last week? [laughter] >> i think rick is reminding me it might be north of that a lot more. but what it means, what it means to all of us that are not always on top of all the fiscal things that we have, it means a lot of jobs. and this is so important to all of us, is job creation, job sustaining. and, so, we have some great announcements to make and it continues the effort of making these piers 30-32 to be of greater significance than the decaying piers that we have inherited for so many decades. i'm excited that we're continuing this effort to make sure that the warriors move here, th
, but because of the work and the jobs that have been, you know, held by oakland residents for years. and when we asked and talked about workers from the oakland arena being able to have first shot at the jobs over here, they were very supportive of that. and i think that speaks a lot about what this project is. it's not just a san francisco project. it's a bay area project. it's a project in which working families throughout the bay area will be able to make a living. so, i just want to thank the warriors for seeing it in those big pictures and big terms. and, mr. mayor, for you to really have the insight and the leadership in bringing everybody together. i'd like to introduce wyling hoover who is our leader in oakland. and after wyling comes up, i'd like johnny stakes who is a worker at the oakland arena and billy who works at the ballpark here to say a couple words. >> hi, wyling from local 50. i must say that we will be sad to see the warriors go and we prefer for them to stay in oakland. we're really delighted at how we're being embraced here today and being welcomed into san francisco. o
across the bay or look down in san jose, where the crime rates have rocketed off the charts. oakland has twice the number of homicides we have in a city half the size because they were laying off officers. i think the reality of the situation you that you have to have officers on the streets with proactive law enforcement in order to prevent that situation. so i think the fact that we're hiring we owe great honors and kudos to the mayor and the board of supervisors. because otherwise we would be in the same situation and it's terrible what is happening over there, especially in oakland. with reference to other reports i attended a memorial with the chief for officer gelf, who was also killed in the line of duty and interesting, most of the officers there were talking how they were going to retire in the next six months and making the hiring of new officers very important. our officers learned that night that they should have the same weapons so they could share am nation and legislation that resulted from that because the suspect who killed the officer was wearing body armoire. it was a

the most really typical building that with just completed in oakland is a 10-story mid rise, 1440 broadway t. was well reported in the news because unfortunately right after we bought it, the [speaker not understood] destroyed the building and it's right there occupy oakland. and we've come back and built that. we had that building to its historic pinnacle and it's absolutely beautiful. our lead tenant in it is a company, well known company in the east bay called oaklandish. that is a design company. well known design company. so, the two office buildings, 101, 104, 114 broadway is very similar. we're right in the middle of a rehab in cincinnati, ohio, a brick building very similar to that one -- to -- this is also going office light industrial. i would say 1440 would be the best nearby example of the 101 and 104-type building. the two buildings that are subject to the advisory of imminent collapse which is 113 and 114, that would probably be like the last slide, which was the 4-point project in richmond, california. that building won the national merit award, which is one of the highest a
francisco. oakland took 300 guns as well totaling 600 guns off the streets of the bay area in one saturday. so that's a good thing. and then finally we did some promotions. we did 8 captains, they have been assigned, 15 lieutenants, they have also been lieutenants, and 29 sergeants, the entire group is in the academy right now and they will go to their respective assignments on saturday and as we close out the holiday season we did bayview toy give away today, mission station and api on bay shore was on saturday and obviously operation dream in various joy give aways will be going forward the rest of the holiday season. and that concludes my report. >> well, thank you, chief. speaking of the real positive news, the press conference with officers cloud and gritch, it wasn't only commissioner loftus that was crying, it was maybe another commissioner. >> i didn't want to be the one that said it, i'm glad you said it. >> even our commission secretary who has done a lot with this department had tears in his eyes. it was an incredible press conference. what those two officers did was beyond
in 800 mega hurtz and not what oakland had but the simulcast radios and departments didn't want toking on the same but we put them on it and you're probably in the next genraition of those radios right now and by the way -- there was a man here who preceded the mayor. it was then called the chief administrative officer and rudy rothenberg and incredible civil servant and i worked with him on this building. in fact i drew this building. i had architecture work as a midship man and if i find it i'm going to give it to you. we also as a result of that we subsumed the department of public health ambulance into the fire department and should have been done years ago and we centralized 911 upstairs. it was a great ride. in addition to the people i mentioned there were scores of others that helped me to succeed kronenberg was one of these people to help me when the political system was going on and i am particularly indebted to the usual suspects, the san francisco suspects who come forward when you have problems and help you to fix them, and i will end with that because they make a dif
